The Hand Gun in Boll Weevil
Clemson College, March 16- Dust
ing machines consist of two types.
One is the traction machine also
known as the traction power ma
chine. The bellows are driven from
sprockets on the axles of the ground
wheels. These machines, at present
prices of materials and workmanship,
are too expensive for the very small
cottonfarmer. It is, therefore, neces
sary for such persons to employ hand
dusting machines. None of the old
type well known dusting machines
are satisfactory for this work. Fur
thermore, the hand dusting machine
has not shown itself capable of doing
ps good work as the traction machine
and the hand machines are primarily
intended to supplement the traction
machines for nooks and comers of
the plantation that cannot be reached
by the large machines.
The warning against the purchas
ing of hand dusting machines is the
same as for traction machines; name
ly, in the purchasing, the farmer
?should ask the entomologists for in
formation in regard to the machine
because the wrong kind is of little or
Itis believed that there will be a
number of machines on the market
before dusting begins about July,
but at the present time they are un
der construction and will be tested
out by the Federal Government,
whereupon full information as to the
merits of the different machines will
be published for the information of
Card of Thanks.
We take this means of expressing
our thanks to the people of Red Hill
and Trenton for their kindness to us
during our recent bereavement caus
ed by the death of our father, Fred

Relieve Acute Labor Situation.
Farmers and people generally will
be forced to adopt labor saving de
vices and implements of every form.
A good way for farmers to begin is
the purchase of a tractor. It not only
saves labor Ly plowing and harrow
ing land at the same time, and a large
acreage per day, but it does the work
more thoroughly than man and
beast can do it. Read in this issue
what Messrs. Yonce & Mooney say
about the Fordson tractor. The price
of this machine puts it within reach
of Edgefield farmers.
